You’re the one that I want

It’s been so long since I’ve had you. I’m dreaming about you day and night. Sometimes I see you with another and I want you so bad it’s hard to look, but I can’t turn away either. You’re so close I could touch you, taste you, but I don’t, because if I do, I’m a goner.

You play it so cool. I try to erase you from my mind; to distract myself with others. But they are just sad substitutes. Sure, they are sweet, but they aren’t you. Only you make me melt. And I know I do the same to you. I’ve seen it. And when you do, you’re quite irresistible.

I know we’ll be together again soon. I have never been able to stay away from you for long. I’m addicted, even though you’re not the best thing for me. Somehow I don’t care. I want you anyway. I must have you.

But for now, I needed a little distance. I was in over my head, not capable of going one night without you.  I was using you for all my emotional and physical needs, and I need to be able to cope without you as a crutch. It’s a test of my strength because sometimes with you, it’s easy to lose myself.

One of these days, I will be done with all this pretending. With all this running around with others who aren’t you. Who don’t satisfy me the way you do. Who don’t make me feel as good. I’ll always come back to you. You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it.

So I’m counting the days. And truly, the day I get my hands on you, I will consume you. But until then I wait, and I pine for the moment when you will touch my lips again.*



Me and You. 4 Eva.


*It’s been two weeks since I’ve eaten any ice cream. I usually do this once or twice a year when I think I’ve just completely lost control. Thankfully, it never lasts.

  1. I did not know you take an occasional holiday from your beloved!!!! Wishing you are very happy reunion! xo

  2. Sooo…you’re on a break?
    I admire your strength. I’ve been slumming in the snack drawer myself trying to avoid what I really want. All those other treats mean nothing, but they fill a void until I can resist no longer.

    You’re being so strong and when the time is right…the relationship will be richer and sweeter than ever. YOU have the upper hand and you call the shots…er, spoon 🙂

  8. Haha!! I’d be sad without ice cream.

  9. Parting is such sweet sorrow. If you love something, let it go, if it was yours, it will come back to you. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

    Enjoy the reunion with your beloved. I’m sure it will be so sweet! 😉
